The 3rd GIWA (Greek International Women Awards) took place an hour ago* at the Pierce Theatre within the The American College of Greece compound – a place and name of reference for nearly150 years…

Despite traffic issues and an extended time-wise event, over 300 staunch supporters, including the finalists, presenters and Sophia Konstantopoulou- Vilhelmsen’s team, remained at a special purpose open air “atrium” to eat and drink in honor the Finalists and conversely the Winners for just over 15 categories covering the entire spectrum.

The Greek Shipping Fraternity from the main capitals of the Maritime world – Piraeus and London, was well represented in the audience, finalists, judges and winners.
